The most significant appeal with WhatsApp is group chat, I mean the idea of chatting with multiple contacts via text is a technological feat if you ask me. But that same feature, group chat that can be a bit chaotic. This is why WhatsApp just introduced a new feature whereas an option group chats that allows approved administrators to send messages.
This feature change will make group chat more functional and more attractive to the user. This change comes at a time when not too long ago WhatsApp added a bevy of features that includes group descriptions, anti-Spam tools, and catch-up feature that shows users replies and mentions. Some of these mentioned features are indeed nothing innovative, being that Facebook owns WhatsApp so some of these features may seem familiar.
Before I close this important post, here's what officials from WhatsApp had to say in their recent blog post: "One way people use groups is to receive important announcements and information, including parents and teachers at schools, community centers, and non-profit organizations. We've introduced this new setting so admins can have better tools for these use cases." To access and enable the setting, all you need to do is open "Group info" in group chat, then go right over to Group Settings> Send Messages and select "Only Admins."
For those frequent users of WhatsApp drop a comment on the box and let me know whether or not you like this new group chat feature.
